Holly & Hugo’s highly digestible “Pet Nutrition” course is served and hot to go.

Mouth Watering

Until now pet nutrition courses have been stodgy affairs aimed at veterinary professionals, or alternatively just a single serving that looks at just one species. But this is where Holly & Hugo’s Pet Nutrition course is refreshingly different.

The course’s aim is to make pet nutrition palatable to you, the pet owner, so that you can make well-informed decisions about how best to feed your pet. Neither is the course limited to a single species, but considers all manner of furry friends, as well as those with scales and feathers.

If ever you wander in a daze down the pet food aisles and then reach for a familiar can, then let the Pet Nutrition course guide you on how to find a healthy diet. It helps you decode food labeling, and discusses the advantages and disadvantages of different types of diets such as canned, semi-moist, moist, and dry.

Practical not Preachy

Once you’ve decided what to feed, the course helps you understand how much to feed and how often, in order to keep your pet fit and well. In addition you learn how to objectively assess your pet’s weight, and for those pets not in ideal shape, suggests realistic strategies for weight loss (or weight gain!)

If this starter has whetted your appetite then other culinary delights in store include explaining the benefits of life stage feeding, and how you can extend your pet’s life by the appropriate use of prescription diets. And if your dog or cat is expecting the patter of tiny paws – no problem! There are modules on feeding pregnant and nursing, dogs and cats.

If you know your pet is overweight, but aren’t sure what to do about it, worry no longer. Our recipe for healthy weight loss is practical rather than preachy. Oh, and if you have an overweight diabetic cat then you really can’t afford to miss the “specials board” on this one.

Linking Diet and Health

Dog with a jippy tummy or skin problems? The pet nutrition course discusses the reasons why trying a hypoallergenic diet might be a good idea, and how to go about feeding one. And if you ever wondered if veterinary prescription diets for kidney disease or bladder problems were worth the money, then we explain how they work and which pets are most likely to benefit.

But this course isn’t just about cats and dogs. The course also covers multiple species from dogs and cat, to the latest thinking on the feeding of rabbits and guinea pigs, plus other small furries, to reptiles, and snakes. So whether you own exotic animals, or as interested in them, this is a fascinating read.

Ask Yourself one Question

A good quality diet is vital for your pet’s health and longevity, but can you hand on heart say you understand what you’re feeding them? If the answer is “No” then this course helps you ask and then answer the right questions.

Written by veterinarians, this is a practical course that aims to inform and empower you, the pet owner. Think of Holly & Hugo’s Pet Nutrition course as a one-stop gourmet feast for all things pet nutritional.

And finally…

Don’t forget, Holly & Hugo are now interactive. In keeping with their philosophy of innovation and empowerment, they are proud to offer students free access to unique webinar Q & A sessions, hosted by a veterinarian. Be sure to place your order now, before there’s a rush on the kitchen!

    My dog, 9yr old shih-tzu named Jake will sometimes throw up if he doesn’t get fed right on time. Should we be supplementing him with a healthy snack during the middle of the day? He is also a graze and a picky eater and doesn’t always eat his breakfast entirely either. To get him more interested in his food we put some green beans or some cooked carrots from a can. He goes nuts for them and this now seems to have broken him of his grazing habit at least for now (being a shij-tzuhe changes his mind at will😆). We give him Blue Buffalo senior for small dogs and ensure that the vegetables are low to no sodium added.
